In this example, NYUser1 is a member of the global desktop entitlement called My Global Pool. My Global Pool provides an entitlement to three floating desktop pools, called pool1, pool2, and pool3. pool1 and pool2 are in a pod called NY Pod in the New York datacenter and pool3 and pool4 are in a pod called LDN Pod in the London datacenter.

Figure 1. Global Entitlement Example
A diagram that shows an example of a global entitlement.

Because My Global Pool has a scope policy of ANY, the Cloud Pod Architecture feature looks for desktops across both NY Pod and LDN Pod when NYUser1 requests a desktop. The Cloud Pod Architecture feature does not try to allocate a desktop from pool4 because pool4 is not part of My Global Pool.

If NYUser1 logs into NY Pod, the Cloud Pod Architecture feature allocates a desktop from pool1 or pool2, if a desktop is available. If a desktop is not available in either pool1 or pool2, the Cloud Pod Architecture feature allocates a desktop from pool3.
